ground, making sure federal assistance gets where it's needed. it's much harder for mitt romney in that he can't really campaign and yet, he doesn't want to totally disappear and crede the last five days of television coverage. it's still the president of the united states acting like the president of the united states. it's when -- it's how you get into situations like we saw in ohio today. i don't -- i don't question the motives. i think in a short period of time what mitt romney was trying to do is how can we thread this very fine line. so i sort of understand in that way. it's just difficult because when you get this close to an election, andrea, six days, everything is with politics. everything. that's what the hard thing that mitt romney is trying to do, how do you take advantage or at least stay in the conversation, with six days left without appearing to be just overtly political and campaigning. >> mark halperin, how are they managing it? >> i don't really have any criticism of how either of the candidates is conducting themselves. governor romney had to position somewhere, he

undecided. so it's an interesting event, but look, if romney had it in the cards to win before i'm not sure it would shift things enough against him. >> and also it still comes down to swing states and in many of those what may be more important for candidates is the inability to get to places like ohio in the last few days. >> sure, romney spending time in ohio, and that's where this election comes down to. where the average poll has obama up by 2, 2 1/2, 3 points in ohio. you go back through history, how candidates overcome leads like, that it's actually pretty hard. a small lead, but when you have so few undecided voters left, a third of the state already voted and turned out, it's pretty challenging right now and that's romney's biggest hurdle, entirely ohio. >> you've been described as a potential one-term celebrity pollster. how did you react? you are a bit of a rising superstar. but of course if you get it wrong you've got obama 75% chance of winning. if he was to lose now, lu resign? what happens to pollster experts like you? >> well, this is why we give probabilities. earlier this

p&g brandsaver. >>> richard mourdock is the republican nominee for senate in the great state of indiana. as mitt romney has said, if he wins, he could be one of the 51 votes needed to overturn obama care. but this week richard mourdock found a way to stand out from the pack, so much so that i thought i'd send him a note. dear mr. mourdock, sometimes i still flinch when i'm touched in a certain way, even if it's the loving embrace of my husband. i can't stand to watch tv shows where rape is the central plot line. and even some seasons of the year are harder for me. those of us who are sexual assault survivors call these triggers. and we spend our lives, the lives that we lead after the attack avoiding and managing these triggers. a congressional debate shouldn't have to come with a trigger warning. but apparently, richard, yours should because in tuesday's debate for indiana's u.s. senate seat you said this. >> i believe that life begins at conception. the only exception i have for -- to have an abortion is in that case of the life of the mother. i just -- i struggled with it mys

romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling debacle. how did the world's greatest democracy start functioning so badly? maybe the next president can try to fix this broader problem. but first the fiscal cliff. unless congress acts, the spending cuts and tack increases that would be triggered automatically next january would take 5.1% out of the country's gdp in one year according to the congressional budget office. that would be one of the most severe experiments with austerity in history, larger than anything greece, spain, italy, or the united kingdom has tried. in fact, it's almost three times the size of britain's austerity program. and the results of those european programs have thus far been a dramatic slowdown in economic growth and a sharp spike in unemployment. once again, the rest of the world watches to see if the united states, the center of the global econom

romney is in the ball game here fifth. the lead in the states is going back and forth. whenever it is, it is certainly not good news for the president. he just -- it is a time of high anxiety. he should be closing this election as an incumbent, and it does not appear to be at least not yet. gerri: the impact of the storm. out of pennsylvania, a real problem if they cannot get power back in quickly because it would affect the polling stations and sells. what do you expect? >> well, to be honest, we have never been here before. and so it is very hard to project. certainly, you know, the greatest impact are usually in higher poverty, lower-income neighborhoods, those seemed to be the last ones to get their power restored. the ones that have transportation problems and so on. that cannot be good news for the incumbent president. to be honest, the truth is that we really just don't know. we don't know what will happen right up until tuesday, three tuesday. gerri: well, that is fascinating probably dead on accurate about who gets power last for. it is potentially impacting the election. som

campaigning hard for those eight states up for grabs. net romney wasn't wisconsin but obama was an ohio early voting well under way including florida as candidates tried to close the deal. will the jobs report affect their vote? terry will list is with us. is this report each enough for someone who was undecided? >> i don't think so. 23 million still unemployed and underemployed. mitt romney can say the unemployment rate has gone higher. here is my take away. we have been down so long it looks like up. it is not good. if we grow every month adding 170,000 jobs it would take almost 10 years. people don't have that time. ashley: lakisha underemployment rate those who would want to work full time so 14.6%. >> with the northeast sandy affected 20 states have been a people are paying attention? but i wonder if voters are not paying attention if you have no heat or the kids cannot go to school your priorities maybe something else. we value these numbers but not every single boater boater -- voter. tonight we'll talk about the mayor and i cannot get pass this. >> new york city marathon will co
